Case Cost Lines of Credit for the Legal Industry

Succeed boldly – finance case costs to free up your capital for growth.

What is a Case Cost Line of Credit?

It is a truly unique credit facility for contingency fee law firms that relieves law firms from the pressure of out-of-pocket payments for case costs like expert witnesses, deposition transcripts or innovative 3D accident reconstruction technology. At settlement time, most of our law firm clients recoup these costs – and the interest – from their client’s share of the settlements.
